Mt. Greylock Hill Climb Rollerski Race
November 6 All day
NENSA is excited to return to Mount Greylock, Massachusetts in collaboration with the Berkshire Nordic Ski Club for the second running of the Mt. Greylock Hill Climb.
This classic hill climb will be interval start with options for a 3 mile and 8 mile course and was a highlight of the 2021 Rollerski season with a banner day on the mountain.
This event will be the final event of the Allagash Brewing Masters Cup — scored by best two of three placements of the 2022 hill climbs in the NENSA Rollerski Race Series.
The toll road will be closed for the season during this event. All competitors must park at the bottom of the road. The organizing committee will provide van transportation from the summit back down to your cars.
Skiers must abide by the “yellow line” — always staying in the direction of travel in the right hand lane. Skiers who cross the center of the road may be removed from the competition. There is no downwards travel on the road — warmup must be conducted at the base of the road on skis or on foot.
The lodge at the bottom of the road will be open — including bathrooms.

NENSA COVID Recommendations and Guidelines:
- NENSA is STRONGLY ENCOURAGING VACCINATIONS for all of our eligible ski community members.
- On all our registrations we are asking if participants are vaccinated or not (you can also choose not to answer the question, but we hope you do) so we can get a sense of how many folks are vaccinated at our events and races.
- If inside space is available at any NENSA event, we are requiring everyone wear masks when indoors.
- We also strongly encourage masking outdoors where physical distancing is not possible.
- Like last season, we may have an official COVID Controller at the entrance to each event asking folks whether they are currently experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, and turning them away if they are.
- We also ask that all potential event attendees use common sense before arriving at an event and do not show up at an event if you have ANY symptoms.
- Practice best etiquette in your personal life and while traveling to and from events. Wear a mask in indoor public places, wash your hands often, social distance inside and outside, and be smart and safe so we can continue to put on great events for you all season while keeping you and our whole community as safe as possible!
